Earth Day: The Water for Life Program

"Water is and will be the most valuable resource of the 21st century. Our world is being continually fraught by a lack of water in some areas, and deluges in others. Arid communities throughout sub-Saharan Africa are at once starved for access to clean water, and at other times fearful of the devastation brought by flash floods.

The Water for Life program works with communities to harness the life-giving power of water. CWS staff work with local partners to build water pans, sand dams, shallow wells, rock catchments and a host of other systems to utilize both rain and underground water sources. Communities also partner with CWS to learn more about conservation, so that this most valuable resource will be there for our children and grandchildren."
